The Platinum Party at the Palace is a three-hour celebratory event in honour of HM Queen Elizabeth II's Platinum Jubilee.

Featuring performances from the likes of Queen, George Ezra, Sir Elton John, Sir Rod Stewart, Nile Rodgers and Diana Ross, the ticketed event will see stars from film and TV re-enact some of the most significant cultural moments from The Queen's seven-decade reign.

"The evening will pivot around global themes that have been born, or evolved, during the breadth of Her Majesty’s reign due to extraordinary British and Commonwealth contributions including Fashion, Sport, the Environment, 70 Years of Pop Music and Musicals – the latter curated by legendary composer Andrew Lloyd Webber," the BBC teases.

Throughout the show, Buckingham Palace will be illuminated by projections to accompany the performances and songs, while the BBC will be covering the event, with Kirsty Young in St James's Park and Roman Kemp backstage.

In addition, the UK's very own Sam Ryder will be performing fresh from his Eurovision success in Italy.
